• Finished Journals

    Posted on July 16, 2013 by in Sewn Spine, Workshop Followup

    Students in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) classes have finished their books and every single one is wonderful. This is the first sewn structure for almost all of the ten students and they showed extraordinary patience with the needles, 36 inches of waxed linen thread, and tiny little beads that were added to the spine. They all helped each other and laughter was constant. I knew I had an engaged class with I couldn’t get their attention—always a good thing as far as I’m concerned. The covers were goatskin, the endpapers were handmade papers from Nepal, the text papers were Stonehenge printmaking paper. Good Job!
